The absorption of electromagnetic waves and Raman scattering in glasses are calculated. The principal scattering mechanism considered is the interaction of the electromagnetic waves with atoms tunnelling in strongly fluctuating double-well potentials which are characteristic of glasses. The temperature and frequency dependences of the absorption coefficient and the cross section of the small frequency shift Raman scattering are obtained. The results are fitted to the experimental data.
